Below are Lynden’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.
When I was eight, I created my own paints from berries, vegetables and other available compounds, and would use leftover pieces of wood that my father had as my canvas. A teacher gave me art supplies a couple of years later, and I was thrilled to have actual paints.
I am a self-taught artist, and my main medium is oil on canvas. As a fourteen year old, I started teaching, and at one point had over 80 students from age seven to seventy five, and this provided the funds for better quality art materials.
Over the years, I have spent a lot of time in the woods, and bogs as they fascinate me for the strong colours and beautiful subjects they provide. When I paint, I use for the most part, triple zero brushes, as they lend themselves to fine details.
Having spent my childhood summers in rural Nova Scotia, I was drawn into the wild landscape and adapted accessible materials from berries to crushed shells to translate the scenes surrounding me.
Throughout the years, my fascination and interest in nature has grown and I strive to envelope the viewer with the feeling of inclusion in the mood and transformation of visual presentation, to finished artwork. Her website is www.lyndencowan.com
